We are open - safety is our top priority!
If missing teeth have diminished your self-confidence, and you have difficulty with speaking and chewing, then implant-supported dentures in Suffern may be the answer for you.
With an acrylic base that looks like your natural gums and either acrylic or porcelain teeth that look very natural, denture implants can restore your enunciation, your ability to chew your food, and your self-esteem. You’ll regain your beautiful smile, and since implants don’t slip or slide or fall out, no one will know that you’re wearing dentures. If this sounds like a great solution for you, then call our Suffern office to schedule your first appointment.
Are Implanted-Supported Dentures the Best Kind of Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are permanently affixed to your gums, just like your natural teeth. The posts function as the roots of the teeth, and since implants don’t fall out, you’ll always have a full set of teeth in your mouth. They require no special care, they’re reliable, durable, and comfortable. If you want more information about our affordable, quality implant-supported dentures, then call our Suffern office today.
How Do I Get Implant-supported Dentures Installed and How Will They Secure My Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are secured by biocompatible titanium posts that are surgically implanted into your jawbone. The installation procedure will depend somewhat on the type of implants you get and your healing time, but in general, the procedure is as follows. During your first visit, your dentist will prep the sites and then install the posts into your jawbone. After the sites have healed, which can take up to six months, you’ll return to our office and the dentures and support mechanisms will be installed. Some patients can get the entire procedure in one visit, but that is on an individual basis and would be determined by your dentist.
There are two types of implant dentures: ball-retained and bar-retained. A ball-retained denture uses ball-shaped attachments to affix the denture to sockets on the implants. A bar-retained denture uses a curved metal bar to secure the dentures to the implants using clips. Both types are equally secure and functional, but your dentist will recommend the best type for your unique needs. For more information on denture implants, call our Suffern office and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
Will My Implant-supported Dentures Be Expensive?
The cost of denture implants will be unique to you, but we’ll do our utmost to provide you with affordable, quality implant-supported dentures that will fit your budget. Several factors will influence your final implant-supported dentures cost, including the type of denture you select, any additional dental work you need, the total number of office visits you require, and any insurance benefits you have. During your initial consultation, we’ll provide you with an estimate of each procedure that you’ll need and its associated costs, so you’ll know exactly what your total will be. If financial constraints are an issue, then let us know. We want you to have the denture implants you need, so we’ll work with you to make your procedure affordable.
Are Implant-supported Dentures Really Worth the Extra Cost?
Implant-supported dentures look very natural. The gums are acrylic, so they look like your own gums. The teeth are made from acrylic or porcelain, so they look like natural teeth. Since they’re permanently installed, you’ll always have a full set of teeth in your mouth and no one will know they’re dentures unless you tell them. Unlike traditional dentures, implants require no special maintenance, you care for them the same as you would your natural teeth. They don’t break or fall out, so they don’t need to be replaced, and there are no messy, expensive adhesives to buy. Although they may be somewhat more costly initially, denture implants can be the most cost-effective dentures overall. With proper care and maintenance, they should be a one-time investment that will last for the rest of your life. If you think denture implants are right for you, then call Ramapo Dental Care at (845) 512-1219 for an appointment and let us help you get the beautiful smile you deserve.
What’s the Care Routine for Implant-supported Dentures?
Your implant dentures require no special cleaning or care regimen, they require the same good oral hygiene routines that your natural teeth require. You should brush and floss twice daily, use an antibacterial mouthwash, and have regular dental checkups. When you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and hold it at an angle to your gums. Use gentle pressure and a horizontal movement to remove buildup, and be sure to floss each time that you brush. Your dentist may recommend using a proxabrush for deep cleaning and a floss threader for tight spaces. With proper care and maintenance, your denture implants should last for the rest of your life.
Why Should I Choose Denture Implants?
Implant-supported dentures are reliable, natural-looking, durable, and cost-effective. They’re easy to care for and they’re usually a one-time investment. They’re very comfortable and they can boost your self-confidence and your self-esteem.
